A clean revolution is quietly taking place on Europe's roads. Hydrogen fuel cells are powering fleets of public buses and refuelling stations are being deployed. Building on the results of several pilot projects, uptake of the technology is accelerating rapidly, putting hydrogen fuel cells in a position to underpin zero-emissions transport Europe-wide.

Unlike PVC or aluminium, its feedstock is renewable, its production is carbon neutral and its waste is biodegradable, yet wood has one major drawback – it starts to degrade when exposed to moisture, harsh temperatures and bright lights. Now, biological alternatives to oil-based varnish are turning wood into one of the most sustainable building materials available. [ Horizon-magazine.eu Link ]...
